MH370: More possible debris found off Madagascar and Australia

Investigators will examine multiple pieces of debris found off Madagascar and Australia to see if they belong to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.


Three pieces were found by American lawyer Blaine Gibson on the island of Nosy Boraha, off the east coast of Madagascar.

Another was found Thursday by Samuel Armstrong amid seaweed and wood on Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia, CNN affiliate Seven News reported.

The Joint Agency Coordination Center, the agency in charge of coordinating the search for MH370, said in a statement that it “is aware of these reports” that possible debris had been found.

Debris could yield clues

Gibson had been filming with public television channel France 2 when he and the crew came across what appear to be pieces of the Boeing 777 which disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board.

Earlier this year, Gibson found a piece of a plane wreckage off the Mozambique Coast, while on a self-funded hunt for the missing plane. Australian investigators later said it “almost certainly” came from MH370.
